Analysis – Why Arsenal were RIGHT to ignore Song and Fabregas

Arsenal should not have allowed Fabregas to join Chelsea and should have brought back Song – Could this have been possible? By Tinashe Shamuyashe (The Analyzer)

Watching PL Fan Zone could be a torture if you are an Arsenal fan. From a panel which is rabidly anti-Wenger, to purported Arsenal fans that send emails that are anything but supportive to the club they claim to support, to skypers and callers who always moan about everything Arsenal and Wenger. Yesterday while watching the program after the match there was a caller from Nigeria who claimed that Wenger made a mistake by not bringing in Fabregas and Song back to Arsenal. This provided ammunition for the anti-Arsenal panel to criticize everything Wenger with one panellist suggesting that he believed that this was Wenger’s last season at Arsenal and he would be promoted to the board.

Confirmed – Arsenal turned down Fabregas AND Alex Song!

Arsenal fans were understandably put out in the summer when Arsene Wenger decided against activating the buy-back clause to bring his prodigal son Cesc Fabregas back to the Emirates, but now Alex Song has also revealed that Wenger turned down the opportunity to bring Alex Song back to the fold.

Song, who was a mostly unused team-mate of Fabregas at Barcelona, said in the Mail: ‘I would have liked to come back, but they didn’t want me,’

‘That’s life. I’m not mad at them.

Chelsea launch bid for ANOTHER ex-Arsenal star?

Arsenal´s local London rivals Chelsea have already secured the services of Wenger´s prodigy Cesc Fabregas from Barcelona, and now, according to a report in today´s Express, the hated Mourinho is also interested in returning to the Catalan giants to try and re-unite Fabregas with his old partner Alex Song, despite interest from Manchester United.

Unlike Fabregas, Song never really made the first team at Barcelona, and has spent most of his time on the bench, but was awesome in his last season at Arsenal in the Premiership and reportedly wasn´t too keen on leaving the Emirates in the first place. The 26 year-old still has many years at the top in him, and could evenbe better now than when he left London.

Arsenal Debate – Is it time for for the return of our prodigal Song?

The Cameroonian midfielder Alex Song was in awesome form for Arsenal before he was unexpectedly sold to Barcelona two summers ago for a reported £15million deal. It was widely reported that Song was sold off against his wishes amid rumours that he had asked for a new improved contract, so he certainly didn’t upset the fans by forcing Arsenal to sell him like some disgraced former Gunners.

Now it is being reported that Song is pining for a return to England after being dubbed surplus to requirements by the new Barca manager Luis Enrique, and it would be no surprise at all if Wenger brought the 26 year-old back to the scene of his former glory days.

Arsenal transfer rumours – Alex Song, Alvaro Morata and Toni Kroos!

Okay I know that there is still a long way to go before the transfer window opens, but I would like to venture that Arsenal’s involvement in the chase for trophies may give us an advantage over clubs like Manchester United in the summer transfer window, as David Moyes side may not even be able to offer any European football at all next season!

Why would Arsenal want Song back from Barcelona?

There is a new transfer rumour concerning Arsenal, but I would be very surprised if anything came of it. Apparently the former Gunner and Cameroon international midfielder Alex Song could be available in January, after failing to establish himself in the Barcelona team.

Song may have hoped that things would get better this season under the new manager of the Spanish champions, but the 26-year old still spends most of his time on the bench under Tata Martino so, according to a report in the Mirror, he could be on his way back to the Premier League. The report claims that Arsenal and Manchester United are keeping tabs on the situation.

Is Alex Song hinting for an Arsenal comeback?

Alex Song once again linked with Arsenal! by Ash

Arsenal rarely get linked to their former players when it comes to transfer news and if there is a report, it’s usually an Arsenal legend like Thierry Henry or Cesc Fabregas, however the rumour circulating now is that another current FC Barcelona man Alex Song is hinting at a possible return to the Gunners.

Ozil stats better at Arsenal but one former Gunner got 100 percent!!

There have been plenty of reports about what Mesut Ozil would bring to Arsenal, and he is already proving to be a massive influence, even though it usually takes time for players from other leagues in Europe to get used to the fast and frenetic English form of the beautiful game.

As reported by the Daily Star, Ozil has an app on his personal website that shows his stats over his career, and it shows that his stats have actually improved since the midfield star moved to Arsenal.

If Alex is going for a Song, should Arsenal take him back?

Would you take Alex Song back at Arsenal? by Ash

After just 18 months in sunny Spain, former Arsenal player Alex Song is reportedly considering his future at Barcelona, with severe concerns over a lack of playing time for the defensive midfielder. Alex Song only joined Barcelona in the summer transfer window of 2012, and although his move wasn’t as controversial compared to the likes of Van Persie, Fabregas and Nasri, it was still a massive shock to see the Cameroonian leave the club that had made him the player he is today.

What is really going on between Arsenal board and Wenger?

The facts Arsenal fans need by Big Gun

Dear Gooners, If we are to unite as one voice to try and resolve these issues at Arsenal, we need to look at exactly what the problem is. I wrote an article not too long ago and I mentioned it, but most fans are still seeing red and will blame everything under the sun as to why Arsenal is in such a predicament.

Wenger deserves all the abuse he gets from Arsenal fans!!

Wenger boos justified by GP

To all Arsenal fans, I feel your pain tonight, however some fans deserve more sympathy than others. Those of us who have criticised Wenger’s lack of hunger and ambition for improvement have sometimes been abused on this site.

Gustavo staying at Bayern and Arsenal have just a week to trigger Fellaini clause!!

Gustavo unlikely to join Gunners by Ash

All summer Arsenal fans have been calling for Wenger to address the midfield when it comes to looking to sign players and it seems that the main target man wanted by Gunner fans at the moment is Bayern Munich and Brazil international defensive central midfielder Luis Gustavo.

Arsenal have arguably been missing a proper central defensive midfielder ever since the Gilberto Silva days, and although many will argue that the likes of Alex Song have since had a go at the role, he never really became a true DM and that’s where a lot of our problems supposedly lay.
